Galantas Gold Corporation 
 Notes to Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements 
 Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 
 (Expressed in Canadian Dollars) 
 (Unaudited) 
------------------------------------------------------------- 
 

1. Going Concern

These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which contemplates that Galantas Gold Corporation (the "Company") will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. In assessing whether the going concern assumption is appropriate, management takes into account all available information about the future, which is at least, but is not limited to, twelve months from the end of the reporting period. Management is aware, in making its assessment, of uncertainties related to events or conditions that may cast doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company's future viability depends on the consolidated results of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary Cavanacaw Corporation ("Cavanacaw"). Cavanacaw has a 100% shareholding in both Flintridge Resources Limited ("Flintridge") who are engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of gold properties, mainly in Omagh, Northern Ireland and Omagh Minerals Limited ("Omagh") who are engaged in the exploration of gold properties, mainly in the Republic of Ireland. The Omagh mine has an open pit mine, which was in production until 2013 when production was suspended and is reported as property, plant and equipment and as an underground mine which having established technical feasibility and commercial viability in December 2018 has resulted in associated exploration and evaluation assets being reclassified as an intangible development asset and reported as property, plant and equipment.

The going concern assumption is dependent upon forecast cash flows being met and further financing currently being negotiated. The management's assumptions in relation to future levels of production, gold prices and mine operating and capital costs are crucial to forecast cash flows being achieved. Should production be significantly delayed, revenues fall short of expectations or operating costs and capital costs increase significantly, there may be insufficient cash flows to sustain day to day operations without seeking further finance.

Negotiations with current finance providers to extend short-term loans have progressed positively and the maturity dates for both the G&F Phelps Ltd. ("G&F Phelps") and Ocean Partners UK Ltd. ("Ocean Partners") loans have now been extended to December 31, 2023 (see notes 10 and 15). During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company raised gross proceeds of $8M through the issuance of shares to new and current investors to meet the financial requirements of the Company for the foreseeable future. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company raised gross proceeds of $3M through the exercise of warrants. Based on the financial projections prepared, the directors believe it's appropriate to prepare the unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements on the going concern basis.

As at March 31, 2022, the Company had a deficit of $55,246,043 (December 31, 2021 - $53,830,231). Comprehensive loss for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $2,286,789 (three months ended March 31, 2021 - $736,888). These conditions raise material uncertainties which may cast significant doubt as to whether the Company will be able to continue as a going concern. However, management is confident that it will continue as a going concern. However, this is subject to a number of factors including market conditions.

These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements do not reflect adjustments to the carrying values of assets and liabilities, the reported expenses and financial position classifications used that would be necessary if the going concern assumption was not appropriate. These adjustments could be material.

2. Incorporation and Nature of Operations

The Company was formed on September 20, 1996 under the name Montemor Resources Inc. on the amalgamation of 1169479 Ontario Inc. and Consolidated Deer Creek Resources Limited. The name was changed to European Gold Resources Inc. by articles of amendment dated July 25, 1997. On May 5, 2004, the Company changed its name from European Gold Resources Inc. to Galantas Gold Corporation. The Company was incorporated to explore for and develop mineral resource properties, principally in Europe. In 1997, it purchased all of the shares of Omagh which owns a mineral property in Northern Ireland, including a delineated gold deposit. Omagh obtained full planning and environmental consents necessary to bring its property into production.

The Company entered into an agreement on April 17, 2000, approved by shareholders on June 26, 2000, whereby Cavanacaw, a private Ontario corporation, acquired Omagh. Cavanacaw has established an open pit mine to extract the Company's gold deposit near Omagh, Northern Ireland. Cavanacaw also has developed a premium jewellery business founded on the gold produced under the name Galántas Irish Gold Limited ("Galántas"). As at July 1, 2007, the Company's Omagh mine began production and in 2013 production was suspended. On April 1, 2014, Galántas amalgamated its jewelry business with Omagh.

On April 8, 2014, Cavanacaw acquired Flintridge. Following a strategic review of its business by the Company during 2014 certain assets owned by Omagh were acquired by Flintridge.

On April 17, 2020, the Company completed a share consolidation of its share capital on the basis of ten existing common shares for one new common share consolidation.

The Company's operations include the consolidated results of Cavanacaw, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Omagh, Galántas and Flintridge.

The Company's common shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and London Stock Exchange AIM under the symbol GAL. On September 1, 2021, the Company's common shares started trading under the symbol GALKF on the OTCQX in the United States. The primary office is located at The Canadian Venture Building, 82 Richmond Street East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5C 1P1.

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared coronavirus (COVID-19) a global pandemic. This contagious disease outbreak, which has continued to spread, has adversely affected workforces, economies, and financial markets globally, leading to an economic downturn. It is not possible for the Company to predict the duration or magnitude of the adverse results of the outbreak and its effects on the Company's business or ability to raise funds.

3. Basis of Preparation

Statement of compliance

The Company applies International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and interpretations issued by the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee ("IFRIC"). These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 - Interim Financial Reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information required for full annual financial statements.

The policies applied in these unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements are based on IFRS issued and outstanding as of May 30, 2022 the date the Board of Directors approved the statements. The same accounting policies and methods of computation are followed in these unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements as compared with the most recent annual consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended December 31, 2021. Any subsequent changes to IFRS that are given effect in the Company's annual consolidated financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2022 could result in restatement of these unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

13. Net Loss per Common Share

The calculation of basic and diluted loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was based on the loss attributable to common shareholders of $1,415,812 (three months ended March 31, 2021 - $639,963) and the weighted average number of common shares outstanding of 78,556,743 (three months ended March 31, 2021 - 46,565,537) for basic and diluted loss per share. Diluted loss did not include the effect of 21,103,598 warrants (three months ended March 31, 2021 - 1,700,000) and 4,425,000 options (three months ended March 31, 2021 - 570,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as they are anti-dilutive.

14. Revenues

Shipments of concentrate under the off-take arrangements commenced during the second quarter of 2019. Concentrate sales provisional revenues during the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled approximately US$219,000 (three months ended March 31, 2021 - US$567,000). However, until the mine reaches the commencement of commercial production, the net proceeds from concentrate sales will be offset against Development assets.

The bonus warrants are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws and the rules of the TSXV, expiring on June 4, 2022. The fair value of the 250,000 warrants was valued at $51,000 using the following Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected dividend yield - 0%, expected volatility - 107%, risk-free interest rate - 1.22% and an expected average life of 1 year.

17. Contingency

During the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company's subsidiary Omagh received a payment demand from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs ("HMRC") in the amount of $499,553 (GBP 304,290) in connection with an aggregate levy arising from the removal of waste rock from the mine site during 2008 and early 2009. Omagh believed this claim to be without merit. An appeal was lodged with the Tax Tribunals Service and the hearing started at the beginning of March 2017 and following a number of adjournments was completed in August 2018. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Tax Tribunals Service issued their judgement dismissing the appeal by Omagh in respect of the assessments. A provision has now been included in the unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements in respect of the aggregates levy plus interest and penalty.

There is a contingent liability in respect of potential additional interest which may be applied in respect of the aggregates levy dispute. Omagh is unable to make a reliable estimate of the amount of the potential additional interest that may be applied by HMRC.

18. Event After the Reporting Period

On May 3, 2022, the Company granted 1,742,500 stock options to directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Company to purchase common shares at $0.60 per share until May 3, 2027. The options will vest as to one third immediately and one third on each of May 3, 2023 and May 3, 2024.
